A healthy diet and exercise routine offers many benefits, but it can’t always eliminate stubborn fat from trouble spots. We were excited to learn about CoolSculpting®, a non-invasive procedure to safely eliminate fat without surgery. We interviewed experienced CoolSculpting provider and CoolSculpting University faculty, Leslie Petersen, NP, to learn more. Leslie is a Nurse Practitioner and the Clinical Director of beyond|AESTHETICS, a medical spa located at Village at the Park in Camarillo.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting freezes fat to eliminate up to 25% of fat cells within the targeted area in a single treatment. Additional treatments are typically needed to produce exceptional results.
What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?
It is FDA-cleared to treat thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, upper arms, and under the chin.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
Yes, the fat cells that CoolSculpting destroys do not grow back.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Many people can benefit from this procedure. Ideal candidates are at a stable, healthy weight and have specific areas they would like to target.
What is the difference between CoolSculpting and liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgery requiring serious recovery. CoolSculpting is a safe, non-surgical option with minimal downtime.
How do I choose a CoolSculpting provider?
CoolSculpting is an innovative technology that has evolved quickly so you’ll get the best results at a practice that has kept up with the advancements.
